Artist's Description

A zebroid (also zedonk, zorse, zebra mule, zonkey, and zebrule) is the offspring of any cross between a zebra and any other equine: essentially, a zebra hybrid. In most cases, the sire is a zebra stallion. Zebroids have been bred since the 19th century. Charles Darwin noted several zebra hybrids in his works.
Zebroid is the generic name for all zebra hybrids. The different hybrids are generally named using a portmanteau of the sire’s name and the dam’s name. There is generally no distinction made as to which zebra species is used. Many times when zebras are crossbred, they develop some form of dwarfism. Breeding of different branches of the equine family, which does not occur in the wild, generally results in infertile offspring. The combination of sire and dam also affects the offspring.
A zorse is the offspring of a male zebra and a female horse. This cross is also called a zebrula, zebrule, or zebra mule. The rarer reverse pairing is sometimes called a horbra, hebra, zebrinny or zebret. Like most other animal hybrids, the zorse is sterile.*
